Arrival Procedure

Pull up at the barrier of the car park and one of the ShortRun team will come to your window to confirm your details. They'll tell you where to park and give you a receipt with information on what to do when you get back from holiday. Make sure you keep this safe. They'll then open the barrier and let you in.

Once you've parked, head to the bus stop and let the driver help you with your luggage then drop you off at the airport. The bus runs when needed 24 hours a day, takes 5 minutes and is included in the price.

Return Procedure

Give ShortRun a call on 0121 794 2600 when you get to bus stop A, where you were dropped off, so they can send the bus to collect you. You'll then be dropped off in the zone where you parked your car, so there's only a short distance to walk. They'll help you with your luggage again.
